Industry Works

Industry Works is the next phase of the Southwest Louisiana Economic Development Alliance's Ready, Set, Work workforce initiative. It is a collaborative effort between the Alliance’s Workforce Development Committee, Phillips 66 Lake Charles Manufacturing Complex, Louisiana Economic Development and the Regional Economic Alliance of Louisiana.

 The goal of the project is to increase awareness of, interest in and access to information about the wide range of career opportunities in our local refineries and manufacturing facilities, as well as the service providers who support these companies.

Record-setting industry expansion is taking place in Southwest Louisiana. Good jobs are available now and for years to come: operators, electricians, welders, lab techs, engineers and more. Average salaries range from $50,000 to $100,000 and up, with good benefits.
